Running a convention is not as easy as you think it might be. If you want to give it a go, then check out this series of articles:
- Guidelines: How to Start a Convention
- Guidelines: How to Set-Up Your Convention (or Any Event) Page
- Convention Organizing 101 – The People
These are in no way the definitive be all and end all rules for a convention. They are only a guideline…a place to start.
I do not run conventions, I have not run conventions, and I have no plans to run a convention. I’ve seen how much work they are.
These articles are based off of my own experience, those of vendors, agents, artists, volunteers, and several convention organizers I have spoken to over the last several years.
